Cycling proficiency for the 21st century
Give your pupils the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to cycle safely with Bikability training from First Step Cycle – a fun, engaging way for your school to provide high quality cycle training designed for modern road conditions.
Delivered by experienced, fully qualified instructors with a passion for cycling, Bikeability is usually fully funded for both schools and pupils, and includes 3 different course levels to suit children of all ages, abilities and confidence levels.
Level 1 is taught in a traffic-free environment, and children learn the basics of how to control their bike and make an off-road trip, for example on cycle paths.
Level 2 is covered on quiet roads but in real traffic conditions. Children achieving level 2 will be able to make a trip to school or elsewhere on small roads.
Level 3 incorporates busy roads, traffic lights, roundabouts and other advanced road features. Children will not usually be taught this until they start secondary school.
Working in close partnership with you and your school, First Step Cycle will handle everything, from the planning and delivery of high quality, practical,safe, cycle training, to the final assessment and awarding of certificates.
